Early Modern Cultural Studies
Early Modern Cultural Studies is an interdisciplinary series that examines a wide range of aesthetic works and moments in their original cultural milieu. The series is interested in questions about a rapidly changing world where politics, religion, national identity, and gender roles were all subjects of contestation and redefinition, focusing on a broad definition of the early modern period which encompasses the fifteenth to the eighteenth century.
This would include, for example, the works of Shakespeare and his contemporaries as the products of the burgeoning theatrical industry, designed for the entertainment of heterogeneous audiences who lived in a rapidly changing world where politics, religion, national identity, and gender roles were all subjects of contestation and redefinition.
Manuscripts will be chosen from fields including but not limited to, literature, history, philosophy, religion and political science, in order to enable a truly multifaceted understanding of the early modern period.
